First Day of School

We CANNOT believe it's already the 3rd Week of our Back to School BASH Linky! 
We go back to school ourselves this Friday and our kiddos come next Thursday the 20th.
Eeeeek...we still have SO much to do!!!

We have LOVED participating in this Linky with all of our new bloggy buddies:
They each have SO much to share and we have truly enjoyed reading all of their posts.
Thank you again to Lindsay for organizing our Back to School BASH Linky Party!!!

Here are a couple of ideas we use the First Week of School with our 1-2 multi-agers...

During the first week of school, we work hard to establish procedures in our classroom/school. We use Daily Five in our room sooooo learning to follow Read to Someone procedures is VERY important for us! (Especially with 47-50 kiddos.) 
Throughout the school year, we use mini-books that our students can read in 
class together and then take home to reread and collect in their book boxes at home. 
(Post about this will be Coming Soon!)

ABC Apple Book
This is a fun & silly alphabet book that our students LOVE!!!

Who Are You? Book
Another fun book that we have used for YEARS during the First Week of School is our "Who Are You"? book. This book helps us as we work to create a positive classroom environment. 
Our students truly relate to this book! 
They make connections with the silly characters and their own behavior.
In this book your students will meet: Butt-In Brown, Yelling Yellow, Greedy Green, Meany Magenta, Rudy Red, Whiny White, Tattle Tan, Betty Blue, Pouty Purple, and Pokey Pink, and everyone's favorite TOMMY TRYER!!!☺
I mean who wants to be a Rudy Red when you can be a Tommy Tryer and make your teacher SO happy and have lots of friends?

  1. I love your ideas! I love creating books with my kids and having books that they can all read! I also love your "Who Are You?" book. I use "Butt-in Brown" all the time with my kids! I tend to get a lot of those! Thanks for great ideas!


  2. Hi! I am teaching 1st grade this fall again after many years in upper grades. I have been looking for the characters/stories in your book featured above. I was hoping to purchase it on Teachers Pay Teachers, but you no longer sell your products there. May I purchase it directly from you? Is each character featured singly on one page with their story? Thanks so much! :D
